House with Joy on Die Cut Divas

 Hey there,  

Hope all is well.  Yes it's the middle of Summer, but I am constantly adding to my holiday card stash.  Today I share with you a bird house shape card on Die Cut Divas Challenge Blog.

I really like my Poppystamps Bird House Pop-up Easel Set, it's so fun to make card with.  I paired it with Poppystamps Holiday Joy die set today.  I used some pattern paper, glitter paper, and dark chocolate card stock, et voila, another holiday card done!

August's challenge theme on Die Cut Divas is: Shape Card (any shape excluding square and rectangle), and Poppystamps is our sponsor.  Challenge will receive $20 gift card to their store.  

Oh wait, while I got my die cut machine out, I made another shape card using a die - Poppystamps Stain Glass Snowflake, my blog friend Arlene gave me.  

I use the big die from Hero Arts Big and Small Snowflake Frame Cut set to cut the card base. I cut it three times.  One for the back flap, and two are die cut with the Stain Glass Snowflake, and I use them to sandwiched a piece of acetate which I dry emboss the Stain Glass Snowflake and color with alcohol markers.  I embellished with some white/clear sequins.
